Re: Is my AO40 beacon strength average ?

The 5 dB improvement I mentioned between systems due to the antenna and feed
was between a 39" BBQ at 24 dBi linear and a 1 meter dish with G3RUH
circular patch feed at 26 dBc.  24-3 =21 dB. 26 dBc-21 dBc = 5 dB.
Unfortunately, I assumed the RUH dish was 1 meter and it is not.

The rest of the comments were correct, as was the point I was trying to
make, but I sure glitched on the dish size. I was thinking of what I was
going to order from DHsatellite and not the size of the RUH dishes. duh!
